It was a battle that Phil's Army and Navy Outdoor store could no longer withstand. The military surplus and outdoor store, which has operated in Coeur d'Alene since 1982, is closing. "The Internet killed me," said Phil Motl, who has owned the store since 2006. "People would try on boots here or get measured, then they'd go home and order them on the Internet so they don't have to pay sales tax." The store at 1620 N. Government Way in Coeur d'Alene is holding a going-out-of-business sale, offering sales of up to 60 percent off through an undetermined date this winter/Brian Walker, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.
